creation of an air defense identification zone on november 23. it is china's right to create such a zone. it is not a no-fly zone. it is not a zone in which the chinese are necessarily threatening to use force, but it is a zone in which traffic is monitored. thishinese announced basically by attaching some conditions to it. the international aircraft flying into the zone would identify their planes, their path. it was mandatory notification. air defense zones generally speaking did not require mandatory identification unless you are going to the country which has created his own. it was not the creation of the zone that created the problem. it was the conditions the chinese attached to that zone, the mandatory character of them. particular,tates in but other countries, this is a highly traveled air corridor. the fact there were conditions attached to it was very bothersome. the other thing is the chinese created this air defense zone that included airspace over contested islands with japan. inally the modus operandi creating these zones is to negotiate where you have overlapped or contes

in ways that are problematic. host: what would you cut the besides defense? guest: revenues that we have lost that would otherwise should take in. other than defense, there is waste and inefficiencies in a wide range of domestic spending programs. i am willing to take a look at almost everything. i think the demonization of social security and medicaid are inappropriate. they are not responsible for the deficit problem we have right now. ronald reagan in a debate with walter mondo and clear social security has nothing to do with the deficit. it was true then and it is true now. att in plano, texas. caller: thank you for taking my call. food stamps is not one of the areas that needs to be cut. it is only $80 billion a year. is nothing. the area of the budget that needs to be cut are medicare and social security. those are the largest areas of the budget. he onlythe budget -- t way you get to a sound budget going forward, you have to be willing to cut the areas where we spent the most. anst: the caller makes important observation. we have to take a look at health care expenditures in this
's his job to stand up and tell the truth. and when he says we can raise spending for defense back to the pre-sequester level or for domestic, that is just evidence that we're going in the wrong direction. we can easily live with the sequester. it's a washington beltway lie that we can't live with $600 billion of outlays for defense, 50% more than we had in 2000 and we've had no new industrial enemies come after us since then that we can't live with 600 billion in domestic discretionary spending. again, 200 billion more than bill clinton left in real dollars today's dollars. and i don't think he was starving. >> in any deal we see out of ryan and patty murray a joke? >> it's a total joke. and i would hope that at least some of the people on the progressive side would understand if they don't get at entitlement reform and revenue raising now it's going to be far worse later. and the republicans on the tea party side would be right to reject this deal because it's nothing but a beltway scam. >> bloomer surveillance jargon alert there. david stockman using the word progressive. i beli

action on this. i don't have anything to add to that. >> reid put the white house on defense over the position to exempt some of the staff from enrolling in the d.c. exchange because their current plans on capitol hill are more generous. >> isn't that hypocritical for somebody -- >> i direct you to senator reid's office. >> why shouldn't they sign up like everyone else? >> i haven't seen that. >> my health insurance premiums are going to double. my co pays and deductibles dr tripled. i'm thrilled to death as a you can tell. >> this time doing an interview with chris matthews with an audience of student at american university. >> he made promises during the campaign he hasn't been able to keep. >> we caught up with students at american university today including matthew, a freshman who says disappointment extends beyond health care. >> the disappointments of our generation. when i graduate i want a job in the marketplace. the way the president is enacting policy, i don't think that's become a reality. >> even one student who defended the president has bad news for the white house c
working for the federal government. i remember bob gates, my former secretary of defense wonderful public servant, when i first came in i asked him so bob you got any advice for me. he said mr. president, just understand you've got a lot of people working for you. somebody somewhere at this very moment is screwing something up. and that's true. and so i have to consistently push on every cabinet secretary on every single agency how can we do things better? and we can do things better. part is we need to reorganize the government which was designed primarily in 1935 or '45. we could consolidate agencies. we've got to do a better job buying information technologies. how we make ourselves more customer friendly. those are all things that we can improve. but the upshot is the government still does a lot of good. the last point i'll make on this is we've had a politics, frankly, the entire republican party brand since ronald reagan has been government's the problem. and if you day after day, week after week, election after election are running on that platform, and that permeates our culture a

this on stupid projects. >> it's not just this web site. the department of defense spent a billion dollars on baby site that after 10 years they concluded did not work. they called it a disaster. there is no accountability for. this in the private sector this healthcare.gov would cost about $50 million. that is less than 1/10th of what your viewers paid for this web site that doesn't work. >> how do you stop it from happening tomorrow on a new contract? >> better bidding, stop rewarding. >> they don't care. >> political donors. there are a number of remedies congress has at its disposal. we had hearing on some of them yesterday. the ultimate remedy, i think, greta, is elections. my fear is that we have come to expect so little from government that we're really not surprised that something doesn't work and we're not surprised that it comes in over budget. if we don't get that fixed, forget about the web site. if we don't fix the trust, we're not going to make as it a republic. >> congressman, always nice to see unchts yes, ma'am. you too. >> coming up, mayor giuliani about the new numbers j
